Speaking about his hit single, Wonderful, Burna had this to say: “But that wasn’t really the inspiration behind the song. I’d been on tour for the past three years nonstop, so this pandemic was like a blessing and a curse, ’cause I got to spend more time with my family and myself than I have in years. So that’s where ‘Wonderful’ comes from. I recorded it at the beginning of the pandemic, when I first got home … not really knowing the full extent of how long [it would be].”
Burna Boy whose collaboration with Sam Smith on the single, My Oasis, earned him praises from many music lovers, revealed he has always been a fan of the British singer.
“He hit me up to do the song, and I said yes. It was a no-brainer,” he said.
